Zuri – coming to a classroom, office, living room, or bar near you

Zoobotics, a German company making robots and interfaces for medical equipment, has prototyped a programmable, cardboard robot – which they have called Zuri.  Find out more about their “paperbot system” here.  The body design is modular, so twelve different robots can be made, just using simple modelling tools and glue.  The robots movement is achieved by servomotors and controlled from an app on a smart phone.  Zoobotics believe that this will be a cheap, fun and highly effective way of teaching youngsters about electronics, programming and robots.  To turn this into a commercial proposition, the company is likely to seek crowdfunding.
